Nokia roadmap for 2014 and 2015 gets leaked

Several of Nokia’s plans regarding phone releases for the next few months have been leaked today. The company, now owned by Microsoft, will obviously continue to focus on Windows Phone devices.

Microsoft holding event on May 20, Surface Mini could be unveiled

Microsoft has scheduled an event for May 20. In the invite it sent out to the media, the company mentions this is going to be “a small gathering”.

That idea is perhaps solidified by the Microsoft Surface branding on the invite. So...

That’s because such devices have already been spotted in store warehouses, although they aren’t on sale just yet. Furthermore, we can...
